The Fourth Discipline

The Fourth Discipline

Why train hard just to see time gains dissipate when moving from one discipline to the next? Racepace coaching is built on helping multi-sport athletes maximise their efforts.

On Bank Holiday Monday 26th August, BTF Level 3 coach Rodger Wilkins and BTF Level 2 coach Sarah Jepson will be hosting 'The Fourth Discipline', a comprehensive training day where we'll focus our attention on helping you improve the most overlooked area of multi-sport racing - transition.

The day will be split in two, with morning and afternoon sessions. The sessions will involve cycling skills, running skills and of course - transition skills. There will be a significant physiological component to the sessions, athletes will need to be well rested and ready to embrace the objectives, and, under race conditions - put their skills to the test.

In order to ensure appropriate quality, the group will limited to a maximum number of 8 athletes.

Cycling, running and transition kit will obviously be needed but it's up to you how much kit you bring - we advocate bringing anything that you would use in a duathlon (run/bike/run).
